Visa focuses on UK to expand mobile payment services in Europe

Thursday 21 February 2013 | 13:58 CET | Author: Marion ter Welle | Background
Visa is aiming for a mainstream launch of NFC based mobile payments in the UK during 2013, building on the positive mobile payments trial during the Summer Olympics in London in 2012. Although contactless payments via mobile and card have been introduced in the UK a few years ago, they have not yet taken off. This is mostly caused by the relative limited number of places where it can be used, as well as by security fears of consumers.
